New Track Release - Resurrection

The following track is both important and special for a variety of reasons. As I've vaguely alluded in the past, while I have been largely alone in these ventures, I have had the advice, support and seldom collaboration of some brilliant minds.

The collaboration involves a close friend of mine, Rob Cavalo, former lead guitarist of UK underground thrash act, Social Head Removal. Rob and I go a long ways back and we share plenty of strange stories. However, needless to say, beyond just a 'partner in crime', he's been an invaluable ally and friend. My kids know him as Uncle Rob and he's a bit of a big deal in our home. Unfortunately, he's quite the character as well—no surprise there, given that he is my friend—and has a tendency to literally disappear from the grid for years on end because he's such a fucking enigmatic adventurer.
This track is titled, Resurrection, and it is originally intended to be part of our project called Apocalypse from 2009. Yes, we had a band and there was some attention surrounding the sample of Resurrection for a few months, but then other priorities kicked in and of course, Rob's tendency to vanish also coincided with those priorities. I've tried to get a hold of him, but whatever; fact is that I considered Resurrection's lyrical and thematic approach as very complimentary to the narrative of Beyond Blood & Ashes. So after having met with Rob in 2012, I got his blessing in adapting the track to my own album as well.

From a technical perspective, and contrastingly speaking, Resurrection is the fastest track on Beyond Blood & Ashes, which is generally following a doom tempo. This particular track was written as a kind of post-thrash metal track with groove metal elements drawing from the works of Lamb of God and Machine Head. The key differences in my adaptation being that while the original was written in drop C tuning, this rendition is in a mammoth drop G with sinister lyrics—conveying the same point—and quotes pulled straight from the Bible. I consider this both a pivotal track, but also a kind of mission statement to some of the more evangelical folk who seem to be following my music and consistently warning me about getting right with Christ. Heh.

This one's dedicated to all human vermin, fellow legionnaires, and monotheistically fanatical shitheads. I present to you all, Resurrection!

And Rob, amigo, if you're reading this and stewing... then good! You know how to get in touch, brother. Until then, I'm glad that at least one of us was able to get this one out into the creative ether.

Hi, I think your
website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your
blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has
some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then
that, very good blog!
